First remove all amarok*
Then try installing it after update, check

#sudo apt-get remove amarok-xine
#sudo apt-get remove amarok
#sudo apt-get update
#sudo apt-get check
#sudo apt-get upgrade
#sudo apt-get install amarok

check your repositories too. Have you enabled testing?
disable that

Hi, amani. I did everything you asked and I still get the same error I posted before about broken packages. Also, I tried to install it through Synaptics and I got the following error:

The following packages have unresolvable dependencies. Make sure that all required depositories are added and enabled in preferences.

amarok:
Depends: amarok-xine but it is not going to be installed or
amarok-engine
Depends: kdelibs4c2a (>=4:3.5.8-1) but 4:3.5.8-0ubuntu2 is to be installed
Depends: libgpod3-nogtk but it is not installable or
libgpod3 but it is not installable
Depends: libmp4v2-0 but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libmtp7 but it is not installable
Depends: libpq5 but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libruby1.8 (>=1.8.6.111) but 1.8.6.36-1ubuntu3 is to be installed


How do I install all required depositories in preferences? Sorry, but I'm still a bit of a newb.
